not happy Review by Caroline

wish I had read Rosa's review before buying. i will add that it would be helpful to know before buying what colors were being used to demo. i, also was not fond of the technique/artwork of the artist.

Don't buy it! Review by Rosa G

I have been a Northlight customer for a very long time, and most of the books and DVDs that I have bought, have been great. However, this "600 WC Mixes" is a very inferior book. The instruction is 'extremely elementary' to say the least. When I got it, I went though it, and was disgusted to see the very poor techniques illustrated. This book was so worthless that I threw it in the trash. Do yourself a favor, DON'T BUY IT!
